Kane, Roslyn D.; And Others
This main volume of a two-volume final report presents findings of a national study of women students in area vocational-technical schools comparing and contrasting nontraditional women (those enrolled in programs where nationally 0% to 25% of the students are women) and traditional women (those enrolled in programs in which nationally 75% to 100% are women) to determine what factors are influential in students' selection of nontraditional or traditional occupational training in nonprofessional occupations and to analyze the data with regard to seven broad occupational areas and sex stereotypes of particular occupations. Chapter headings are (1) Introduction, (2) Executive Summary: Major Findings and Implications, (3) Demographic Characteristics of Students, (4) Educational Personnel, (5) Persons Influencing Decision-Making, (6) Impact of Counseling Methods and Techniques, (7) Relevance of High School Preparation, (8) Motivational Factors, (9) Problems and Difficulties of Women in Non-Traditional Vocational Training, (10) Employment of Students, (11) Alternative Occupations Considered by Women, and (12) Women in "Mixed" Vocational Training. The appendixes contain methodology and methodological tables, questionnaires, glossary, and statistical symbols. (Supplementary tables are in the second volume.) (HD)
